Yesterday it snowed! Not the very first snow of the year but one of the firsts and it was gorgeous. It frosted the top sides of the tree branches and, even more beautifully, covered the ugly pots left on the back porch after I killed the plants in them. The white on evergreen combination is one of my favorite natural color pairings and now that the last of the leaves have fallen from the deciduous trees (that’s fancy-sciency for trees that lose their leaves in the winter) take a moment to show off the variety of evergreens left to your family (conifers, in case you were wondering).
Use the charts below to help you identify evergreens at a glance (Massachusetts has a lot of Pine, Cedar, and Juniper). Make a game out of it with your little ones and before you can say I-totally-looked-up-decidouos-just-for-this-post your whole family will be able to identify evergreens for their own friends.
